i appologize for the mistake.  when issues don't get assigned a common
number, it's easy to miss the fact that different reports are actually
the same issue.  it was not my intent to open a duplicate bug, it looked
like this was new.

maybe it's just me, but dealing with issues in multiple releases with
the debian bts is non-obvious and a major pain.  is the "*right*" way
to do this documented somewhere?
